STRIKER James Anderson says Clachnacuddin should be aiming to pick up six points from their next two matches as they take on last season’s bottom two.
The Lilywhites head to face Lossiemouth at Grant Park tomorrow, who were bottom of the table last season, before welcoming Fort William to Grant Street Park a week later.
Anderson (19) believes their first half display in the 4–2 defeat against Inverurie Locos in their opening game of the season should give the team confidence they can pick up maximum points.
He says two wins in their next two games are targets which they should be aiming for.
“Lossiemouth is one of the games which we should be looking to win and we’ll be ready for that match,” he said.
“I feel we should be looking to get three points there and the week after against Fort William.
“It is a big two games coming up for us.”
The apprentice electrician from Aberarder was previously involved in the Ross County youth set-up before he signed a deal to join up at Grant Street Park.
He scored his first league goal for the club against Inverurie last week and is determined to repay manager Jordan MacDonald’s faith in him by grabbing more goals throughout the campaign.
“I was released by Ross County over three years ago and I am enjoying my time at Clachnacuddin as there other players my age that are not getting the same opportunity that I have been given.
“I am playing in the first team at just 19.
“Due to my hard work in pre-season, Jordan gave me the number nine shirt. I just need to get my head down and work as hard as I can.”
Anderson says he has been impressed with how new manager MacDonald has organised the team since he took charge in September.
He believes they have a chance on improving on 15th place from last season.
“I think we feel we are stronger this year and have a better chance of moving up the table.
“Jordan has got all the boys working together and everyone is up for it.
“In training everyone is more switched on and there is a greater intensity and we feel fitter and better.
“The manager has done his best and done different things and we have a good squad.”
